Maytag washer model #mfw9700sb0 stops cycle shows 2 min and the letter F


Take the bottom front panel off (it has 3 screws.) There will be an off white circular plastic thing there. Resembles the top to a cannister. Twist it off. There will be a good bit of water if it hasn't drained properly. I put a cookie sheet under it to catch most of the water. Once you completely unscrew the top off hopefully your problem will be right there.

When we switch on the garbage disposal, there's no sound at all..dead. Switched power cord to another outlet, plugged it in and automatically the motor turns on but the blades don't move. It doesn't...


If you plug it into the original outlet under the sink and flip the switch, nothing happens? No motor sound? And when you plug it into a different outlet, you can hear the motor, but the blades don't turn?
If this is the situation, I would guess that there's a problem with the insinkerator. Something stuck in it, or it's otherwise jammed. This could have tripped a breaker.
If the breaker failed or the circuit wasn't wired properly, this jammed condition could also have resulted in the wire at the switch or under-sink receptacle burning off of the terminals.
Turn off the circuit at the panel, double check that it's off, and remove the switch and the receptacle to see if the wires are still connected. If they've burned off, do not re-connect them. You should consult a licensed electrician to correct a hazardous situation.

My garburator won't turn off


this is probably because the unit is plugged into a receptacle that is not switched. or the switch could have gone bad

Why are the hot buttons under the suface of ceramic cook top always on?


This is usually the infinite switch has failed. They are easy to check and inexpensive. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/infiniteswitchvideo.html that will walk you thru testing this. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Will under mounted sink take the weight of garburator?


The sink should be physically mounted with clips if it is not cast iron, otherwise a cradle made of wood is usually the route I go.

How do i get it off of sab bath


Sabbath Mode is a feature that allows the consumer to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. Usually this disables the oven, but allows the consumer to still use the surface burners. You cannot defeat it by unplugging the range or turning off the breaker either. You will either have to wait 72 hours for the mode to clear, or figure out how to turn it off.

Somewhere in the owner/operator's manual is a section that refers to "Sabbath Mode". Since all ranges differ in features, you need to refer to the operation section of your owner's manual to find out how to shut the feature off.

The model number you listed this question under does not have the Sabbath Mode feature. I couldn't find it listed in the owner's manual. Do you have the correct model number? On most Maytag model ranges you press and hold the CLOCK button for either 3 or 5 seconds.

If you can't find this information, or no longer have an owner's manual, you can download or print a copy for FREE at managemylife.com. Just enter your model number under the "Manuals" link and you will find it listed in .pdf (Adobe) format. If you have questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Will under mounted sink take the weight of garburator?


No the weight of the disposal will not separate the sink from the granite. When they set the sink they put wood on the edge under the sink to hold the weight of the sink. You will not have a problem.

It has started sounding really, really loud with a long grinding sound and then like a swishy sound for a short break, then the grinding sound again.


Sounds like a piece of broken glass or hard fruit pit stuck in the garburator. Remove the botom rack and disassemble the eniter assembly located below the bottom rack. Keep track of the order of the parts until you reach the stainless steel garburator blade. If you are not mechanicaly inclined, take video of the dissasembley to help you put things back together. You will probably find a foreign object by the time you reach the blade. Continue disassembling the assembly below the garburator to ensure that the drainage ports are not obstructed. Consider re-assembling without the garburator blade to avoid recurring problems. Substitute Garburator blade with routine disassembley and cleaning every 3-6 months. Sadly thats the best way to overcome the failure prone Garburator mechanism. When its time to buy a new D/W, buy one with a filter instead of a garburator. I recommend Miele and recomend against all Whirlpool brands (Maytag, Jennair, KitchenAid, Kenmore, Whirlpool, WhiteWestinghouse, etc.)

When Garburators Jam, you risk overheating that can melt the overpriced circuit board or overheat the motor. Either problem means discarding the dishwasher becasue the repair cost would be too high. The Garburator is a disgusting idea anyway. Instad of allowing food particles to sit at the bttom, the sme particels are minced and sprayed over the dishes that you are trying to clean.
